We live in such a fast-pace world that our minds are inundated with the latest and greatest, overwhelmed with information. We are exhausted by the influences of culture reminding us of what we don’t have. Today I challenge you to do the opposite of what culture suggests and take a moment to be grateful. Everything may not be exactly what you want or how much you want, but commit to sit in a place of gratitude. A place that calls for us daily, but is often ignored. Look around and even if your situation may not be at all what you expected, allow yourself to embrace the beauty of now and excitedly look forward to the future.
